sandy hit the new york area last week, now a florida utility says that the long island power authority sent letters to florida crews and asking them to temporarily join the union before they could help out. and that may have delayed their arrival. the union says no one was turned away if they refused to join. all right. you her all the pundits saying democrats are killing the republican party in the swing states. now senator ted cruise has a real shocker for us. he says immigration trends could very easily turn the reddest of red states blue. we are talking texas, of all places. can you believe that? we will have much more about this republican bungle of immigration when we talk to christopher at 7:50 this evening. new questions tonight following the sudden resignation of cia director david petraeus. over an extramarital affair. chair and senate intelligence committee saying that she will seek testimony from petraeus about the september attack on the consult in benghazi, libya. joining us now is the chair of the house homeland security committee, peter king. peter, chairman king. as al

to "squawk box" this morning, the race in the battleground state of florida lived up to its billing. that presidential contest is still too close to call. but mary thompson is there. and maybe she's not going to call it for us, but can give us more information on where we are. mary? >> reporter: no, i'm not going to call it, andrew. might not be until this afternoon or possibly 9 to 12 days from now before we know the outcome of the florida vote here. the vote count was called off late last night. miami-dade, which is one of the most populous counties here in florida said it would continue the vote count today. hanging in the balance, 29 electoral votes. but, again, at this point may make little difference. this is where we stand as far as the vote count goes with president obama showing a slight lead over governor romney according to the florida division of elections. now, even if the final results are submitted today, if there is a margin of victory of less than .5%, here in florida, that triggers an automatic vote recount. that has to be completed either after nine days after the
